Hossein & Services

My name is Hossein Sheykhlou,  I have been helping overland travelers since 2010 in my home town of Urmia (One of the Iran’s metropolises located near Turkey border on North West of Iran). Because of my personal experiences I’m the travel expert for expeditions, adventures and tours through Iran and now together with our team offering wide range of support for travelers who wish to visit Iran. I’m a motorcycle traveler myself and as a official member of Motorcycle & Automobile Federation of I.R.Iran have ridden all around Iran, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Malaysia, Thailand, Pakistan, India and Russia, therefore, I have so many experiences which helps me to understand overland travelers and help them with their needs.
